Indivisble: A Book Review

Indivisible: A Novel Thanks to the WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group, I recently had the opportunity to read Indivisible by Karen Heitzmann. Here is a brief synopsis: 

"Battling his own personal demons, Police Chief Jonah Westfall knows the dark side of life and has committed himself to eradicating it. When a pair of raccoons are found mutilated in Redford, Colorado, Jonah investigates the gruesome act, knowing the strange event could escalate and destroy the tranquility of his small mountain town. With a rising drug threat and never-ending conflict with Tia Manning, a formidable childhood friend with whom he has more than a passing history, Jonah fights for answers—and his fragile sobriety.

But he can’t penetrate every wound or secret—especially one fueled by a love and guilt teetering on madness."

I have to say, I really enjoyed reading this book. I read it in 2 days, I just couldn't put it down! Heitzmann's writing style is somewhat dramatic and at times could be seen as over the top, but I thought it was well written and enjoyable. The characters are all very well developed and their individual stories work seamlessly into the story. And while there is a hint of evil throughout the plot line, the focus is on the characters and the relationships they develop.

Indivisible is quite suspenseful and just when you think you have it all figured out, an unforeseen twist takes you back to square one. It is truly a page turner. Perfect for the dog days of summer ahead of us! 

To really pique your interest, here is a free download of the first two chapters!  And here is an interview with the author, Kristen Heitzmann.
